Headache / Migraine

<< Treatments | Headache / Migraine



A migraine is a terrible headache that tends to recur and is often accompanied by a feeling of nausea. The pain is usually felt on one side of the head. One may experience flashing lights, zigzag lines, bright spots, partial loss of vision, or numbness or tingling in the hand, tongue, or side of the face. Moving around makes the headache worse. While no medical tests confirm migraine, the diagnosis is based mainly on the above-mentioned symptoms.

Migraine is considered as a neurological disease characterized by recurrent headaches (more than 5 times a year) with pain which lasts for 4-72 hours.  A migraine headache causes throbbing or pulsating pain, usually on only one side of the head. These headaches are often associated with nausea, vomiting, and extreme sensitivity to light and sound. Migraine headaches are severe enough to interfere with sleep, work, and other everyday activities.

The current available treatment is the use of painkillers, NSAID etc which give temporary relief for the pain. It is also seen that acidity caused due to the painkillers can themselves induce and worsen migraine headaches.  The close link between acidity and migraine headaches has also given new dimensions for the treatment migraine. Some studies also claim vascular disorders resulting in Migraine. Even headaches caused by severe sinusitis resemble migraine in some cases.

There are three factors which, when used in a synergy, prevent migraine. The first is to stop rebounding. The second is to reduce your exposure to avoidable migraine triggers. The third is to take preventive medication.
